Estate Grown 100% Kona, 100% Kona, or 10% Kona?
The term “Estate Grown 100% Kona” means the coffee beans are from one Single Estate farm on which is grown and graded as: Extra Fancy, Fancy, #1, Prime or Peaberry Grades according to their size, shape, moisture content and number of defects.
The term “100% Kona Coffee” could mean that coffee is mixed with beans from farms at higher or lower elevations and grown under different conditions within the Kona District.
The term “10% Kona” means that as little as 10% is grown in the Kona District, and 90% of unknown origin, grade and could be an imitation. How can over 20 million pounds of coffee per year be sold labeled as “Kona” coffee when only 7.2 million pounds of coffee per year are grown in the Kona District?
The “Peaberry” bean is unique and sought after because it only represents 5-7% of the entire crop-it has up to 50% more caffeine and is considered the “Champagne!”
